LG’s upcoming ‘rollable” OLED TV will support AirPlay 2, HomeKit

Along with Samsung and VIZIO, LG Electronics says its upcoming “rollable” OLED TV will support Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. And those are just some of the features of what the company says is the “TV of tomorrow.”

The LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R (model 65R9) uses the flexibility of an OLED panel made of organic materials and can “transform” itself to offer three different viewing options – Full View, Line View and Zero View.

Full View purportedly delivers a large-screen viewing experience revealing “the full extent of the contrast, depth and realism that has become synonymous with all LG TVs.” Users can use their own voice to get things done with Amazon Alexa, a new addition to LG's AI TV lineup in 2019, and the support of Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. 

With AirPlay 2, users can easily play videos directly from their Apple devices, iTunes and other video apps, music or photos to their LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R. With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

Line View allows the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that don’t require the full TV screen. In Line View, users can choose from features such as Clock mode to check the time and weather, Frame mode to enjoy family photos shared from a smartphone, Mood mode to create a more relaxing atmosphere as well as others including Music and Home Dashboard.

When in Zero View, all 65 inches of the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R are hidden from view and tucked away in the base. Even in Zero View, users can enjoy music and other audio content which resonate from the 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system.
